Today, we announce some sad news but also an exciting new development regarding the Murrieta 24/7 family.

Murrieta Manny, our old ranch hand friend and unofficial mascot since the creation of our website a year ago, has retired. The old boy had fun in his first few months on the job, giving away prizes from our sponsors. But he's slowed down a bit recently and decided to, as he said, "give one of the young'uns a chance at my job."

That opened the way for a new Murrieta 24/7 mascot -- one we welcome as a symbol of the city's continued development into a center of technological growth. The planned arrival of a Kaiser facility near Loma Linda University Medical Center, the opening of the Murrieta Innovation Center, and similar advancements in health care and computer technology make this a perfect place for our new friend.

Meet Techie Tadd.

He's a lovable little 3-foot, 95-pound hunk of metal, gears, circuits and transmitters. You might call him a robot. Officially, he is a computerized technology assistant. Techie Tadd can perform many tasks and already has been a great help around the office. As you can see, he also helps us spread the news -- although he's having a bit of fun with us by holding up a print product (remember those?)

Tadd does have a bit of an attitude; we're working on that.

But his greatest contribution to Murrieta 24/7 will be to spread the good will of local businesses with a daily prize giveaway on our Facebook page, replacing Murrieta Manny in that role. Once each day, at various times, we will announced Tadd's arrival. Readers can then wait for Tadd to appear and let them know what the daily prize is. If you're interested in entering the random drawing for that prize, all you have to do is leave a comment on the Facebook thread within 10 minutes.

To make it a smooth transition, Techie Tadd has taken over Murrieta Manny's Facebook page. If you were Facebook friends with Murrieta Manny, you are now friends with Techie Tadd instead. And if you aren't already friends with Tadd, who can leave him a friend request now. He is also busy answering old friend requests received by Murrieta Manny.

Techie Tadd's daily prize giveaway starts on Monday, Aug. 17. Watch for him on Facebook. If you have a local business and would like to donate prizes for Tadd to give away as a promotion for yourself, email murrieta247info@gmail.com.
